While it’s impossible to know just how many crimes don’t occur because of surveillance systems, studies have shown that properties with visible cameras installed are far less likely to be victimized.
The reason is simple: criminals target the easiest marks. If you have a system that lets them know you’re watching, they won’t want to approach.
But you don’t have to worry about big, ugly cameras cluttering up your exterior walls. Modern cameras are discreet and easy to hide. However, you may benefit from one visible camera or a sign that lets the world know you can see them.
AFTER A CRIME
The bad news is that crime happens. It can happen to anyone, even if they have a surveillance system. The good news is that a quality system can help catch the bad guys and act quickly and efficiently.
